Overshadowed? I think not.
Pyrobomb has the same invincibility frame but a much quicker recovery. In fact, it's possible to beat Arma without losing any hp by going around in a circle and pyrobombing as she throws the sawblades (they only hurt when returning), provided she doesn't bust out her machinegun, move away really fast or back up into a wall. It's also my main anti-Griff and anti-Charme spell since they get knocked down with Sparkburst. It also has really good upwards range, and you can clear floating pumpkins and bees easily. Not to mention it's not blocked by obstacles unlike Sparky, which is really useful when trying to hit that bomb under the crab boss. Cost effective too - it only costs 5 SP per use.
Ice Mine is great as a makeshift wall or spawncamp trap. Try it while doing a bossrush with Samhains and throw one while they disappear. Since they like to move around you in a circle there's a good chance you get 5 free hits on them, or at least knock away that pesky fire ghost while you Sparkburst the main threat into tiny tiny gems. Also, Geddon Device becomes an even funnier joke - set 5 of them on the same spot and watch as he lands oh so gracefully on them and suicides. The only problem is that it's not blocked by walls, so positioning them can get tricky. Mostly for fun though.
I think I'm gonna lay off Conqueror Caillou for a bit and work with other chars more.
